Never used blog before. I live in New Rochelle. I am very skeptical of Pepe.Only have 17,000 miles on my G35X, I was getting front wheel shudder & needed new rear brakes he tried to tell me that was normal., Got rear for free under TSB and replaced the water shield per TSB and cut rotors on front but did not give me new pads on front. Mentioned acceleration problem, reprogrammed ECU without my permission.Not thrilled with lack of zip. Curious about your fix a faulty tranny valve body. Perhaps better than reprogramming.. I also have the noise coming from lower windshield area so I will try with TSB ITB02-028 2003 G35; CREAK OR RATTLE NOISE FROM THE BASE OF THE WINDSHIELD APPLIED
Service guy tried to sell me fuel injector cleaning for next service which is absurd as well.

Are you referring to losing sound from your speakers while playing CD's? I have an '04 G35 coupe and both speakers are now not working well while only playing cd's, yet work fine using the radio or a cable from my iPhone. Any thoughts?

My G35 suddenly quit on a major freeway. Was almost rearended twice waiting for the police to push me off. Car has been at the dealer for nearly 2 weeks. Has anybody else had a significant electrical problem like this. They are telling me they need to bring in an engineer to review.

Did you ever figure this out? I have the same problem on a 2004 G35 sedan with 114K miles. I went through the front suspension and found nothing apparently loose or worn. I am about 95% convinced the noise is inside the car, and it takes fairly firm pressure on the brake to make it stop. I tore most of the drivers' side dashboard apart lookng for it to no avail. I thought I was reproducing the rattle by just touching and releasing the brake pedal, and at the pedal it sounds like it's coming from the brake booster piston. Problem is it's MUCH louder when running over bumps with the brakes released, so I'm not convinced that's it.
#2848 of 2936 sudden acceleration
Apr 19, 2010 (7:49 am)
we recently purchased a 2006 g35x sedan with 32,000 miles. My wife has been driving it and has complained that twice she has experienced sudden acceleration when going slow and stepping on the brake. I can't seem to replicate the problem. Has anyone else experienced this?

It's called "Engine braking"...a brief surge for about a second or so. This can be happened more often w/ abrupt braking or when driving down a hill.

My wife is also in a 06 g35x. same situation, sudden acceleration, it's happened twice now. she almost ran into another car yesterday, took off in a parking lot prior to this a couple of moths ago. She's not driving it any more till this can be addressed. first time i admit i brushed it off as pilot error, she scared the heck out of herself yesterday.
this car is fixed /diagnosed now or out of the driveway.
#2851 of 2936 Garage door opener
May 08, 2010 (12:39 pm)
Hey everyone. Hope someone can help. I have an 2006 G35 coupe, bought in 2008. I programmed the universal link then to work with my craftsman garage door opener. It has worked flawlessly until this week. It WILL NOT open the garage door from outside, not even if i am directly in front of the door. Once I get the car inside it will open and close it in the garage and it will even CLOSE the garage door outside. I just can not seem to get it to open the garage door from outside. This has been happening consistently the last 4 days or so. Anyone have any ideas? Could it be the transmitter in the car? The battery it runs on? My garage door opener unit? Would trying to reprogram help? Any help would be appreciated!!

If it does everything OK from inside the garage but not from outside, that could mean a weak signal. Did anything happen to the little wire antenna that comes of the garage door motor assembly?
Re-programming should not hurt anything.
The universal link in your car runs off the car battery, I think. It does not require much power. If your car starts, then there's plenty of juice to power the transmitter.
You could also try a separate transmitter. They can be picked up at Sears or the big box stores, if you don't have one.

I appreciate the reply srs. Nothing has happened to the little wire antenna on the garage door assembly that I am aware of. I do have a separate transmitter in the car just in case, but since I still would like to get the built in one working again if possible.
So do you think re-programming is worth a shot?
